On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th March 2014, Kendal town centre will play host to a two day celebration of all things food and drink; a chance to experience the best the region has to offer from artisans and producers, to world class chefs and fresh new talent.
Taking place in the pretty market town of Kendal with the beautiful Lake District as its backdrop, this year’s food festival is set to be tastier than ever before. 2014 will see the launch of England’s North Country Food Market, featuring over 80 top quality regional food and drink producers in what promises to be much more than a farmers market.
The weekend will also feature a packed programme of food demonstrations, talks, tastings and pop up restaurants featuring some of Cumbria’s greatest food heroes, and the return of the Brewery Vat’s Bar Beer Festival where festival goers will get a chance to sample a great range of local beers.
This year’s food festival also promises foodie fun for the whole family with the introduction of our Family Festival Village hosted by Elephant Yard. With all sorts going on over the weekend from children’s cookery demonstrations and workshops, to the live farmyard, entertainment, street theatre and more, there is sure to be something for everyone, from a serious foodie to those seeking two fun days out with the kids.
